Why I Love This Recipe

These delicious drop cookies, plump with dates, pumpkins and nuts, are just in time for fall. The old-fashioned cream cheese frosting will remind you of Grandma's baking.


Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 cup butter, softened
1-1/3 cups sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 egg
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 teaspoon milk
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped dates
3/4 cup chopped pecans
2 tablespoons poppy seeds

FROSTING:
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Directions

1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in honey and egg. Add pumpkin and milk; mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in the dates, pecans and poppy seeds.


2. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
